Liverpool have been linked with Brazilian striker Alfonso Alves.

Rafael Benitez is reportedly preparing a bid for the Heerenveen striker when the transfer window re-opens in January.

Alves scored 34 times in 31 games in the Dutch top flight last season and was named Holland’s player of the year.

Alves’ arrival would probably mean the departure of Peter Crouch who has not signed a contract extension with the Reds.
